The hotel was a great price and perfect location. I like that the office is open 24-7 and that we had a guard by the door at night. The room was a perfect size and very clean! I would definitely stay here again!

Your hotel provided the perfect accomodations for our off-season weekend to attend the sunfest in oc. Your very friendly & helpful staff added to the enjoyment of our stay not to mention your very convenient location which allowed us to walk or ride the bus or boardwalk train. It was great. Loved the 24 hr coffee, also. Thanks again, jessie

In all fairness I also sent this letter on 9/13/14 to the Manager Shawn and have not heard anything back........ Hello Shawn, I was going to place a negative response on Trip advisor, but since you asked nicely and sent your email I will let you know our problems. Motel had a really bad odor, I don't know if it... More

Occasionally we make a trip off season and stay in Ocean City. This recent trip, my wife and I stayed at a small place called The Buckingham Hotel. This hotel was located on Baltimore and 15th street once block from the Boardwalk. It was a very nice little place and they went out of their way to ensure our trip... More

We love a bargain and for a one night stay the Buckingham was a deal. Things we did not consider that we learned are important to us: no elevator, window air conditioning noise, tired carpeting. Curiosities: no hand towels, no blanket (just a bedspread), very friendly yet not very helpful staff. Surprises: great WiFi, stunning bathroom remodel, great location (although... More

This was mine and my wife's 3rd time staying at the Buckingham. We went back because the staff was very friendly, attentive to our needs, very helpful and a pleasure to talk with. Rooms have been updated since our last stay. Hotel is clean, great location with easy access to the beach. Although I was not there to watch TV... More

Although the room and bathroom were a bit on the small side, it was very clean and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. It was very close to the boardwalk. Great location. We would definitely stay here again.

First of all, we are avid travelers and always look to stay at locally owned hotels opposed to chain hotels as we've found that private hotels usually bring some uniqueness to our trip. However this was not the case with the Buckingham Hotel. Upon check in we were extremely bothered and disgusted by the fact that the room had the... More

The rooms are extremely small. But are renovated. The rooms are relatively clean. I would give it a 4 out of 5 for cleanliness. Compared to Wildwood NJ value hotels which are filthy! Attention could be paid to shampooing the carpets in the rooms and hall to maintain a fresh rather than stale smell. Opening the windows and leaving them... More

Once we were switched from the third to the first floor, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Maybe the hotel could pay closer attention to the ages of their clients before assigning rooms. We loved the porch. Our housekeeper Margie kept our room in great shape and smelling good. She was very friendly. We will recommend the Buckingham and most likely... More
